The Victims

Nanouk Beljaars - The Victims

I’m working on a series of small portraits. They’re really tiny, 9x7cm, list including. I’m using gouache and pencil and different layers of papers. Including pages of an old book I bought in a thrift shop. The book smells of cigars.

I wasn’t planning on making creepy portraits, but after adding the colors they definitely began to look creepy. They remind me of photographs of people who are long dead, but smiling forever on their photographs.

So I am just adding more and more of those portraits. I hope to make a whole table full of them. I called them The Victims.
